Trivia

The music that Miyagi turns on when he is teaching Julie to dance is the same song that Johnny and Ali dance to at the country club in the original The Karate Kid (1984) and is playing on the radio in the car that picks up Daniel and Mr. Miyagi in The Karate Kid, Part II (1986). See more »

Goofs

Julie's grandmother, in a moment of anger, calls her "Susan". This implies that Julie is her maternal granddaughter, her daughter's daughter. Julie is her paternal granddaughter, the daughter of her son. See more »

Quotes

Sergeant Kesuke Miyagi: The sun is warm, the grass is green.
Julie Pierce: What?

Not as bad as I expected
22 October 2005 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this movie was included in the Karate Kid DVD Set, I almost thought about just buying Karate Kid by itself. But after watching it, I really enjoyed it. It was really cheesy at parts, but other parts were enjoyable and funny.

Miyagi is great as usual, which is the main reason I even bothered to watch the movie in the first place. This movie is worth at least a one-time viewing if you really liked the Karate Kid movies.

Hillary Swank did a pretty good job too. The plot was pretty hoaky, and it was similar to the first Karate Kid, but there was a different dynamic since the hero was a girl this time.
